Hi guys,

Sorry to drag up an old thread

just wondered if any of you have had any issues with the exhaust back boxes on the 2.4 hitting the fixing bolts on the Westfalia.
I've just had the towbar fitted but the bolts are hitting the exhaust just on the front edge of the backboxes (looking from the back). Would be very helpful to know where your bolts come through before I return it to be 'corrected'.

Drilling is not a problem, clean the edges of the holes, first some rust protection paint and after installation some body protective spray.

Bolts hitting silencers were not an issue in my case.

Got it all sorted now thanks Vesku, the towbar fitter put extra nuts on to make sure the heat shield didn't rattle on the exhaust, once removed and grinded the ends of the bolts off, no more banging from the exhaust.

Got the Bosal detachable installed yesterday, but now the car reports driver airbag problem - anybody encountered something similar? Just hope installers did not mess up the wiring...

Had no time to go to the dealer to get it checked yet.
